Christmas Holiday Trading Hours

It's that time of year folks for presents, family time and relaxing in the sun!

The Paua World Physical store will only be closed for Christmas Day.

Otherwise from 24th of December until the 6th Of January we will be OPEN from 9am - 5pm each day.

Our hard working factory team will be on a break then, so this won't be available for viewing. However we still have our informative DVD and well stocked gift shop for all your New Zealand jewellery, souvenir and gifts needs.

Don't forget we also have the excellent kids playground for them to blow off some steam, and our shady gardens to relax outside.
